Neutral Skincare: a review

For the last few weeks I’ve been testing out Neutral Sensitive Skin range in order to combat the every day stresses of work, home and wedding planning.

Neutral 0% was born 25 years ago in Scandinavia to create everyday products that respect people’s skin. Their product range includes:

Face Care

Household

Skin Care

Baby Care

& Feminine Hygiene

My first impressions of the packaging were great, I loved that it was simple and had their key selling points on the front of the product themselves. If you have sensitive skin like I do, looking for paraben free or alcohol free products can be time-consuming in stores, so it’s great to see this clearly labelled on a product.

I started testing the products out straight away and tried the face wash, the skin tonic and the intensive repair cream for dry skin. My skin has been a nightmare lately with breakouts on my skin and forehead but a really dry area around my nose. I liked that this moisturiser left my skin extremely hydrated for a long period and made a great primer before applying my foundation.

I also really liked the skin tonic and found it soothing on my skin when having breakouts and a great way to make sure I got all makeup off my skin. I did like the face wash but actually didn’t see any change in my skin after a few weeks of usage. It’s very gentle on my skin but as my skin started looking worse not better, I decided it wasn’t for me after all.

The main benefits of this brand is their commitment to caring for skin hence their baby care range. I definitely like the products I tried but think if it came down to re-purchasing, I would only buy the cream again rather than the other two products. My review is not bible remember so what does/doesn’t work for me, might be ideal for someone else and I would also suggest trying things yourself. The great thing about this range is they are really affordable so if you did give it a go, it wouldn’t break the bank if it wasn’t ideal.

Dressing like a gent

Your eyes have not deceived you upon reading the title of this post. I am writing a men’s fashion post from the eyes of a mid-twenties lady and I’m specifically writing it for the older chaps out there.

Men are either great at dressing themselves or tend to get their wife/partner/gf/friend to help them out when it comes to picking clothes and not looking like a clown. On many occasion I’ve overhead couples or spoken to couples in my previous job who’ve said they let their wives pick their clothes because frankly; they HATE trudging round the shops. Let’s face it, us ladies can wander the shops and end up in the same shop on more than one occasion and frankly it’s a super power.

I was contacted by www.chums.co.uk to create a style related post for the older gentleman and I’m pretty excited about writing this one and sharing some of my favourite picks from the site.

Let’s start with tailoring and first on my list is this Herringbone Weave Tailored Jacket:

It’s Pancake Day

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday is one of the sweetest holidays around, dating all the way back to 1445. Although we all love a sweet treat, it’s not always the healthiest day of the year, but it doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure. When you’re trying to eat healthy, getting your nutrition from protein shakes and brown rice can be boring, so check out this infographic on Pancake Day, with some handy tips on how to turn your pancakes into a nutritious treat.

Having blogged about Protein products in the past, I thought it would be very fitting to share this today when everyone is trying to enjoy their pancakes but are still trying to be healthy like me.

Thanks
